Due to the Corona curse, my photos are a bit rare at the moment, but here is the steering wheel of my Skoda car.
And here is the normal wheel
“How dare he” thought Tabby. Roschti the feline next door having a wash outside in Tabby’s territory before her very eyes. This was not a dull moment for Tabby, but she kept him under observation.
Contrary to what most people think, I am not online all day, I have a strict regime about my time on the computer.
Of course I am online with breakfast for half an hour, perhaps a little more, but then I need action afterwards. I can assure you that I do not touch the computer again until the afternoon. If it is a shopping afternoon, it will be early evening, otherwise mid afternoon. If I have been on a photo safari, I need more time and most of the evening would be occupied with uploading photos. This photo, showing happy me at the computer, was about a year ago outside on the porch on my big Acer computer, so I was probably doing some photo work.
Otherwise I prefer my Apple Macbook or whatever it is called. That is really a fantastic machine. I don’t have to connect it as it has enough power for a few hours and I can take it with me wherever I go in the apartment or outside. I can even use it whilst watching the TV from an armchair, although I usually then use my iPad. The iPad is such a handy gadget for in between to check on what my online colleagues are doing.
But as I said, I am not a computer addict. Not really, I can be without it although I would never hug the bed without having my iPad and Smartphone on the bedside table. They are a wonderful remedy if you cannot sleep which is one of the reasons why you might find a notice from me on your computer, although it is my early morning hours of around 3.00 a.m. It is a wonderful cure if you cannot sleep, as after doing a tour de computer it is the best sleeping potion you can take.
As I said, I do not have to be online all day, just part of the day and part of the night.
I always had a soft spot for a robin
The sun was well and truly shining when I took the photo this morning. Perhaps I got a little too close with the phone camera, but it was really a strong light. It was quite cold outside, but during the day I am hoping it will warm up. Yesterday was an isolated day. I did not go anywhere and it was just Mr. Swiss and me and the cat. I did have a few words with my neighbour, nicely separated by the hedge in between. She has a little boy who has now begun to discover that legs are for walking. She said she stays mainly at home at the moment, as most of us.
Today I will be on the quest for week-end shopping food, but up to now there are no great crowds. I am already beginning to plan next week as it is the Easter week-end. I am not sure whether our stores will be closed for the normal Easter holidays or not, but they probably will be. I am having to plan food that I can buy in advance and keep, as from Friday until Monday all is closed. Saturday will be a normal shopping day, but what is normal at the moment. I will try to avoid Saturday shopping. Needless to say there will be no Easter Eggs or chocolate bunnies. We have other problems to solve at the moment. I feel that Easter and any other special events no long mean anything.
At last my tulips are flowering in the garden, the last of the Spring flowers to show their colours. I also have some red tulips but they are still in bud. Otherwise there is not very much action here at the moment. I just got a call from my telephone supplier, the Swisscom, telling me of the advantages of the new and better subscription system they have for calls in other countries. I explained that 10 years ago it would have been interesting, but today I no longer travel anywhere and my connections abroad no longer really exist. Actually when I think of it, no-one really calls me and the only calls I make are usually by the messenger. They cost nothing and I have all the advantages of the usual connections.
And now I am really going places and doing things, like the bathroom and a general walk with the Dyson through the apartment. I also have a pile of bed linen to iron (duvet and pillow covers) which does not take so long and I will do it straight away to get it done and done with. And as another day dawns on the empty streets I hope you are all keeping safe from the dreaded unknown enemy.
All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain!
My "bump" was in 2016 when, aged 48, I suffered a stroke. This blog charts my recovery. (Header clipart licensed by pngguru.com.)
Enjoying life and the empty nest while easing into retirement,
I am Ahmed Abdi, a Wordpress blogger and storyteller who searches for stories that inspire people. I love writing because it’s a reflection of how I perceive the world around me. Lost in a world of endless chaos in my childhood, Unforgettable moments of tragedy and triumphs taught me the art of storytelling where I found myself through letter writing and then turned into stories but then sadly had lost everything I wrote for years. In 2018, I decided to create a Wordpress blog site that would allow me to store and retrieve every piece. Stories from my community, city and people are what make my writing so interesting and inspiring! I’m a tea lover so a cup of tea sometimes makes my blog.
